About

Being listened to and understood by a caring professional in an empathic therapeutic relationship can bring tremendous relief from emotional conflict and pain, develop a stronger self, and promote constructive ways to live a more fulfilling and happy life. I have experience in treating a wide range of mental health or neuropsychological difficulties/conditions, such as: adjustment, abuse, anger, anxiety, depression, OCD, post-traumatic stress, perfectionism, self-esteem, trauma, phobias, stress, emotional regulation, sleep, eating multiple sclerosis, traumatic brain injury, dementia, among others.
I approach therapy with professionalism and a sense of humour, while providing a supportive and confidential environment. My main therapeutic approach is CBT, however, therapy is tailored to the unique needs and goals of each client, so my approach can be best described as integrative.
When someone is struggling, I have always found that it would touch me deeply and I felt a strong desire to help them feel better. I soon came to realise that becoming a psychologist was the right career path for me, as I could not imagine anything more meaningful than helping others through their life issues. Everyone has a personal best!
